WINNER: COMPLETED BUILDINGS - PRODUCTION ENERGY AND RECYCLING
Notes from the judges on the winning project
"The project is the "distillation" of a complex industrial process translated into a modular building programme. It is masterfully embedded in the landscape through an undulating timber roof with grass cover that takes its inspiration from historic references. In terms of the category of production, energy and recycling, the building uses biomass for energy production and uses the waste products for the distillation process as recycled fuel thereby looking at waste to energy cycles in terms of the production cycle."
